Monday, February 01, 2016

Hello there,
It's February and if you're reading this, you made it!! Yes,we all did like a dream January went by. Although January crawled by for me. Happy New Month once again and congratulations for still being on the 2016 journey.
 My love for imagery has grown so much and my fascination with it is just... Well a story for another day. This led me to starting a new series on the blog today, where I bring to you tips from amazing photographers to create that perfect picture ( or almost perfect as nothing is perfect we're all just working towards perfection). This series is titled" Through The Eye Of The Camera". I would be exploring and keeping you updated with my budding love for imagery on this platform.


Our first feature on this series is TOBBIE of TCD Photography. I personally fell in love with Tobbie's work years back, around my 4th year in secondary school ( high school) and I've been following up on his work and when I decided to start this series, I thought to myself why shouldn't I feature the first photographer who made me wonder why pictures looked so perfect?
Tobbie is a Lagos based photographer,  Who takes beautiful and very creative pictures, that conveys whatever he's trying to communicate through every picture he has taken.
I got talking to Tobbie  finally and I got him to share his top 10 tips for amazing pictures, which I bring to you today.

 10 TIPS FOR AMAZING PICTURES ACCORDING TO TOBBIE OF TCD PHOTOGRAPHY 
1. Understand your tool. It could be your phone or a camera. Know the right mode to use.
2. Find a very good light source. It could be light from the window.


3. Lighting is key.
4. Look for a good locations.
           
       
                


5.Compose your shot properly. Its helps eliminate distracting objects from the photo.
6. Make sure the camera focuses properly on your subject's eyes ( or yours ).

               
           

7.  If your hand is shaky, use a tripod.
